I'm an Indian and being an Indian I can say that this is the worst Indian restaurant I've been to. It was a weekend and we opted for buffet.

This was my first visit to this restaurant. A colleague recommended this place saying it served a choice of tasty Indian menu. I went there for dinner. The restaurant was hardly busy and the atmosphere inside was a bit "cold". I ordered chicken tikka biryani. The tikka was okay but the biryani itself was still cold because it must have... More

Around are small restaurants if you want a more affordable meal. Local taxis are just waiting outside the hotel- another plus. Breakfast is not included in the package. Service... More

This was close to my hotel so had to be tried. Being a Pakistani restaurant the service was excellent and there was an assortment of different curries. I tried them all and enjoyed them greatly. Of the desserts, the Carrot Halwa was the best (and most unusual). Would certainly come again

I usually go there for a lunch buffet (50 SAR/pax). A good variety of indian dishes, not very hot, designed to taste of locals.
